Contributing to our Website

If you have any documents or images which would help tell the story of the Livery Company Beadle please get in touch.

All of the Livery Companies have detailed records of past Masters, Wardens and Clerks but the role of the Beadles has received less attention. We would like to include names and dates of holders of the posts through the ages (see Rolls of Honour).

Any information would be appreciated as we try to construct a lasting record of the unsung, and usually under-paid stalwarts of the Livery Companies.

We are also pleased to include details of the work of The Ward Beadles and the activities of The Guild of Freemen.

If you would like to contribute material or a link please contact:
